11 – 12

Charcoal clouds glower
swallow sunshine, hope, and joy
autumn’s glow is gone

Merril D. Smith is a historian and poet, sometimes at the same time.

This haiku haunted me from the first reading and introduces the “natural” monsters that inhabit our world.
This haiku is part of my MONSTER series.
